  • Dress Code: Please make sure that your camper brings clothes that meet the following criteria: Shorts must be no shorter than mid-thigh and fitted to the waist, and no undergarments should be seen.  Shirts must cover the stomach and undergarments, no spaghetti straps or strapless shirts allowed.  T-shirts must not have inappropriate writing on them.  For girls, one-piece suits are required.  Campers will be asked to swim with a t-shirt if the suit is questionable.

  • Homesickness: We strongly discourage visiting your child or calling during the week of camp.  It is upsetting to campers and unfair to other children whose parents abide by this policy.  We make every attempt to make camp as fun and enjoyable as possible, however, if your child becomes homesick and is inconsolable, the camp director will call you to pick him/her up. Because we do whatever it takes to help every camper have a wonderful camp experience, these instances are few and far between.   
  • Ilness/Sickness: Our Camp Nurse will be on call to bandage any cuts, scrapes, or bumps as needed. If your child is ill or injured, we will notify you immediately. Please call us and do not bring your child to camp if he/she has vomited, had a fever, or been exposed to any communicable disease in the 24 hours before check-in. 
  • Campers are not allowed to have cell phones. All items on the “Don’t Bring” list will be taken up and returned to the parent at check-out.

  •  Under age 18 driving policy: Parents must sign the consent form so we have permission to sign-in and release camper on opening and closing day. Your child must leave his/her vehicle parked in the designated area during the week of camp. Your child will not be allowed to drive while camp is in session or be allowed to leave Friendship Camp for any reason. Drivers under the age of 18 are not allowed to transport other minors, excluding immediate family members. (If exceptions to this policy are needed the parent/guardian must make arrangements with the camp director and give us written permission.)
